Resource Spotlight:

logo_mtaThe PCS (Permanent Change of Station) process can be daunting or it can happen very quickly. Whether or not you know people at your next duty station, by habit, we run to the Internet to research the area we are moving to—hoping to become experts, find out important facts, and most importantly—find an apartment or house. (MTA) is a PCS relocation resource for military families, by military families. Reviews include neighborhoods, apartment complexes and schools, while MTA’s blog focuses on things to do in the area.

Created by a Navy wife for other military families, MTA is a small business that functions on a Pay it Forward approach. When you write a review for a neighborhood or school where you currently live, or have been stationed, you’re helping military families all over the United States.
